There was skiing, snow shoeing, lunch, music and a camp fire at the end. The snow sculptures took a while to do, since the snow was crunchy, hard to shape, and frozen to the point that it had to be chopped to produce some. One community did a great job producing this...
I should have stood back farther in order to get the whole thing in, but it was a tractor
pulling a wagon full of straw. The carved out seat was a winner with the little ones, and
of course those with cameras.
This one made me chuckle. It is a Snow Bank.
It was a chilly day but the sun shone and those who attended really enjoyed it.
Three communities came together to do this and I guess there are hopes to try it
again next year.
Unfortunately for me, I only stayed for a few hours, but was convinced by P to just
put the snow shoes on and give it a try.....so I did...
managing to do about 20 steps, with P hanging on to me so I wouldn't fall.
He told me I would get 5 points, just for participating.
(I came home after ward, and fell asleep on the couch for a while..oh dear.)
The next day was my eldest granddaughter's 18th birthday, and we were able to
get together for a family lunch to celebrate. Hard to believe that wee baby I held in
my arms is now 18. Where do the years go. I know everybody says that when their
children and grandchildren grow up.
A special day in the life of a special young lady whom I love dearly.
Her birthday is also a sign of spring for me.
Waiting patiently for her sister's birthday in April!!!!
The sun is shining today, and if I don't go out in the frigid temps, it is beautiful. Well,
even if I do go out it is still beautiful, and I know in my heart, this too will pass.
Have a good day wherever you are.
Hope the sun is shining on you.
